Hello! I hope and pray that all is well for each of you! We had a wonderful week, full of many learning experiences! We were able to enjoy a surprise Zone Temple Trip, Zone Training Meeting, and General Conference. It is surely amazing at the amount of peace that enters our lives as we are gathered together, unified in purpose to learn and apply the messages of our prophet, apostles and leaders. I have been impressed at the simple promptings that I have received, and the gentle guidance of the Holy Spirit. The ultimate message to me during this conference is that I must focus on the hope that I have in Christ. Our journey towards perfection is never easy, but as we continue in faith, helping others along the way, all that we can do is enjoy each moment.
All is well, here in Lapu Lapu! Sister Nalawas and I are so happy together, seeing the positive in every situation. Her confidence and skill in Cebuano and in teaching is improving, I think in English as well. She is such a wonderful, Christ-like companion. We are happy because Girlie Ann and our new investigators Shaira and Mirasol are progressing. Truly the work of the Lord. We are working as well with new Less Actives, the same as the advice from President Tanner from the Zone Training Meeting. We are looking forward as well to the Zone Conference on Friday!
With these many wonderful experiences, my heart was lightened with the counsel of Elder Holland, to retain the peace and hope that we have received, to keep moving forward, and to continue in faith. As well, by always standing in holy places. Walk tall! Keep believing! Mosalig sa Ginoo! Thank you! I love you!
